Park Shi-hoo to make drama comeback in OCN’s Neighborhood Hero


Park Shi-hoo (Alice in Cheongdam-dong) has been cast as the leading man in the latest project from PD Kwak Jung-hwan, of Chuno, Conspiracy in the Court, Runaway Plan B,and Basketball. The spy action drama, called Neighborhood Hero, is being planned for a 2016 broadcast on cable network OCN and Park Shi-hoo has confirmed that he’ll be headlining. It’ll have been three years since his last drama, most of which Park spent out of the limelight following a rape accusation and ensuing media tumult. He has since returned to acting in the movie After Love opposite Yoon Eun-hye, which has been shot but not yet released.


Neighborhood Hero is about a former black-ops agent who lives quietly in a small neighborhood and runs a local bar, who ends up fighting evildoers and becoming the town’s hero. Park Shi-hoo has been cast to play the highly skilled ex-spy, who now runs a bar literally named Neighborhood Bar. He keeps his past hidden, of course, and while serving up drinks to everyone who comes by, he naturally comes to know the ins and outs of his neighbors’ lives and becomes part of their family.

He also takes someone under his wing — a young man who dreams of becoming a police officer — and trains him to be an agent like himself. Together they’ll fight the evil that the town faces, and become neighborhood heroes. They don’t say what this evil entails, so we could be looking at anything from gangster loan sharks, to foreign spies, to the zombie apocalypse (okay, probably not that).

The series, though driven by spy action, promises to really be about family, neighbors, and frank everyday life. It’s sure to be compared to Covertly, Grandly, which had a similar blockbuster-action-meets-small-town-family premise, and was really heartwarming when the neighbors became a makeshift family.

Neighborhood Hero is being planned for 20 episodes, to be broadcast in 2016.

SNSD’s Yuri, Yoon Tae-young for OCN’s Neighborhood Hero
by girlfriday | September 2, 2015 

Yuri, Yoon Tae-young

Now that cable network OCN’s new spy action drama Neighborhood Hero has its hero inPark Shi-hoo (Alice in Cheongdam-dong), we’ve got a few more additions to the cast: Girl’s Generation’s Kwon Yuri (No Breathing, Fashion King) is considering an offer to play the heroine, and Yoon Tae-young (Records of a Night Watchman), Jung Man-shik(Good Doctor), and Jo Sung-ha (Hwajeong) have signed on as supporting players.


The new drama from Chuno PD Kwak Jung-hwan centers around a former black-ops agent (Park Shi-hoo) who retires in a small town and runs a neighborhood bar. No one knows about his past, and he helps train a local who wants to become a cop, and finds a family among his neighbors. He’ll eventually save the town, becoming a real neighborhood hero.

Yuri has been offered the part of an aspiring writer, who is among the bar regulars. She stays the longest among the patrons because she uses the bar like it’s her writing office, though she spends more time spying on the locals than she does on her writing. And one day she becomes very curious about one man. I’ll be honest — I find her acting severely lacking for a leading role, because from what I’ve seen, she has very limited experience and not much emotional range. I guess on the upside, I’m not all that invested in this drama.

Yoon Tae-young, on the other hand, is a really strong actor — he played the senior night watchman in the fantasy sageuk Records of a Night Watchman, and managed to be a badass fighter with gravitas in an otherwise silly show. In this drama, he’ll play a Korean-American who grew up in a poor neighborhood and learned taekwondo in order to defend himself in his youth, and eventually grows up to become a mobster.

Jung Man-shik does everything from funny to scary, but this time he’ll play an intelligence agent and team leader who worked with the hero. And Jo Sung-ha has been cast to play a cool-headed detective. I guess you can’t have your vigilante heroes without your cops to give good chase.

Neighborhood Hero starts shooting in September and plans to air early next year.

Park Shi Hoo Confirmed as the Male Lead of PD Kwak Jung Hwan’s OCN Drama Neighborhood Hero


This is interesting news regardless of whether ones likes or dislikes Park Shi Hoo. It confirms that his comeback time has arrived, and checking the calendar indicates that three years seems to be the time a disgraced star gets a second chance in K-ent. Park Shi Hoo will be the male lead of upcoming cable network OCN‘s vigilante drama Neighborhood Hero. Downtrodden heroes is a familiar subject matter for PD Kwak Jung Hwan, who is helming this drama almost two years since his last drama Basketball for tvN. PD Kwak’s Basketball was an abysmal failure in terms of ratings and critical panning but he’s still in my good graces thanks to Chuno (The Slave Hunters) and underrated sageuk masterpiece Conspiracy in the Court. Neighborhood Hero will complete casting soon and start filming with an eye towards an October 2015 premiere.




In Neighborhood Hero, Park Shi Hoo plays the male lead who is a former highly trained secret agent. He’s since retired to run a little shop in a small neighborhood and hears about the crimes going on that isn’t being addressed by official law enforcement. He ends up crossing paths with a youngster who dreams of becoming a crime fighter so he trains the young man in his all agent skills and sends him out to fight crime in the neighborhood. Park Shi Hoo’s comeback will likely stick this time, last year he tried to star in Golden Cross but had to bow out because the public fervor was so strong against him still. This year the response seems more muted, and with the drama airing on cable it’s the audience choice whether to watch him or not. It’s a smart role choice for him, choosing a non-romance driven drama and role to further distance himself from the rape allegations scandal of three years ago which tarnished his image and left many seeing him as a sleazy smarmy actor.

Wow! I can't believe someone made this thread this early. The show will be airing in 2016 but I'm already excited for this one! Hehe.

I just love Lee Soo Hyuk from Scholar Who Walks the Night, Valid Love and High School Savvy King. 

And Park Shi Hoo, as an actor, is just ok with me. 

I don't care if he doesn't have a good reputation in Korea anymore. I'm still watching this!

I'm crossing fingers that Yuri will play well. I love their songs but I have yet to see her act. (first time I'll be seeing her in a drama... I haven't seen Fashion King but I hope she challenges herself and goes beyond public expectation in this one)

Actress Choi Yoon-So has been added to the cast.


Choi Yoon-so (Sang-ye in Twenty Again) is gearing up for a role in OCN’s Neighborhood Hero by attending action school. She’s been cast as a beautiful and talented secret agent; the best on her team. Her character is more than just a hoobae to former black-ops agent Park Shi-hoo (Alice in Cheongdam-dong), and they’ve become quite close. Neighborhood Hero airs in the beginning of 2016. [My Daily]




**Note: I used a different photo than the one in the article, since I wanted a photo of her alone.
